New Website Helps Hoosiers Compare Medical Costs

The Indiana Hospital Association has created a new consumer website.

IHA President Douglas Leonard says helps Hoosiers compare hospital charges and quality ratings.

He says the goal is to help folks better understand hospital billing and what they might ask before deciding on treatment options.

"There's been a lot of interest, obviously, in hospital prices and the difficulty of understanding process and charges," says Leonard. "So we made a decision over a year ago to pursue a site that will help."

Leonard says information on the site is compiled from the Indiana State Department of Health and is based on 100 of the most common Indiana inpatient services.
